This review is from: NETGEAR ReadyNAS 104 4-Bay Network Attached Storage Diskless (RN10400)
Pros: Faster than my old NAS appliance by far. Dual network for redundancy. Easy to use management interface. Lots of bells and whistles.
Cons: The diskless system has been extremely frustrating to set up. The included documentation is the same as the systems that include disks, that is to say the small 4 page instructions basically guide you through ReadyCLOUD setup, and this is NOT what you need for the diskless system. List of supported drives is extremely limited. Netgear will outright refuse support if you do not use supported drives, no matter what issue you have. Having various issues that make me not trust it.
Other Thoughts: Transplanted drives from old NAS appliance to the ReadyNAS. I already anticipated the data on the drives would be destroyed and prepared for such. I only want to use this for storing backups and upgraded due to the old appliance being frustratingly slow. However, it at least worked, and had worked for several years. I'm having major second thoughts about using the ReadyNAS.READ FULL REVIEW
